Woman trapped in storm damaged home in Lancaster County

A Lancaster County woman suffers injuries after she is trapped inside her storm damaged home. Emergency crews responded at about 6:30 this evening to the home along Route 322 near Blantz Road in Elizabeth Township.

A poplar tree on the property snapped during a thunderstorm and came down on the roof and side walls of the home trapping the woman. Neighbors reportedly heard her screams for help. It took emergency crews about half an hour to cut away the collapsed walls to free her.

The victim was awake and responsive as she was being transported to Hershey Medical Center. There is no word on her condition.

The 200 block of the 28th Division Highway(Route 322) was closed for several hours during the rescue.
